The Potter Greens Special Study is an initiative to explore how park-and-ride and transit-oriented development may be utilized to create a safe, vibrant, and attractive mixed used environment adjacent a transit terminal and a natural area in west Edmonton.
The Potter Greens Special Study Area encompasses approximately 6.4 hectares of land located south of Webber Greens Drive (87 Ave) and west of Anthony Henday Drive. In June 2007, City Council approved amendments to the Lewis Farms Area Structure Plan (ASP) and the Potter Greens Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) designating the Special Study Area for further research and analysis.
In 2008 the City hired MVH Urban Planning and Design Inc. to facilitate a community consultation and design process for the Special Study Area. At the end of this process, a draft design plan was created for the Special Study Area which incorporated feedback from the public and other stakeholders.
In 2009 the Special Study Area project was put on hold to allow for more analysis and discussion between City Departments to address changes in land requirements. In particular, the City wanted to ensure that the Special Study Area and the LRT project work together for the good of the community.
The next stage of planning or development in the Special Study Area will proceed once planning is completed for the Southeast to West LRT line.
